Bosch Dishwashers


Hi folks, I’m Chris Wurlitzer from Yale appliance + Lighting in Boston Massachusetts. Today we’re going to talk to you about Bosch dishwashers. For more detailed information about this and other subjects follow the links below.

Who is Bosch?

So Bosch is a German company, but a lot of their appliances are actually made in the United States. They are one of the largest appliance manufacturers in the world.

How does Bosch compare with its competitors?

Well, for the most part they’re going to be quieter and that’s the most common question we see. They also are more energy efficient than what an American dishwasher would be and they heat the water to a higher temperature so they actually get a better cleaning than what the Americans do.

They also found that a lot of people are switching to dishwasher tablets and they actually have a dispenser specially designed for those tablets, which can make things a lot easier for you.

They also have a stainless steel interior, which is a non-porous surface so it doesn’t cling on to bacteria or discolor with hard water.

How do Bosch models differ amongst themselves?

So we generally show about 8 models on the floor. As you go up in price you’re going to get a quieter machine, you’re going to get more cycles such as eco or sanitization, you’re also going to be more flexibility in the racking, such as height adjustable rack, folding tynes and something that is really popular right now, which is the third rack. You can also get water softening salt locations so if you have hard water you could get discoloration, you could get etching in your glasses, this will help alleviate that.

Why is it important to choose a European dishwasher for paneled installation?

This is a question that often overlooked, an American dishwasher sticks out 3 quarter to an inch so if you have flush mounted cabinets you don’t want that panel sticking out so Bosch tends to be a better option, because it can sit more flush into that cabinetry.
